July 1 is celebrated as “National  Doctors  Day ” in India . These professionals spend and dedicate a lot of their time in the service of humanity. They treat the sick and assure to give all the help that they can, for the inevitable, no one can avoid. A yeoman service to the society. On this day, I present a spinach salad, dedicated to all the doctors.

 

Salads form an important part of our diet, more so on the recommendation of doctors.

Benefits of spinach :

Spinach is very essential in a vegetarian diet as it contains a lot of nutrients as vitamin K, viamin A, magnesium, calcium, magnesium  and folate along with dietary fibre. One cannot ignore this from their diet.

Serve it :This salad is good as a snack or as an accompaniment.
